Seminar

[Seminar] Whitney Extension and Lusin Approximation for Horizontal Curves in the Heisenberg Group, Professor Andrea Pinamonti, University of Trento

Friday, November 4, 2022 - 17:00
Zoom

Abstract: Whitney extension results characterize when one can extend a mapping from a compact subset to a smooth mapping on a larger space. Lusin approximation results give conditions under which one can approximate a rough map by a smoother map after discarding a set of small measure. We first recall relevant results in the Euclidean setting, then describe recent work extending them to horizontal curves in the Heisenberg group. We focus on C^m curves.

Speaker: Dr Alejandro Trujillo-Gonzalez, Principal Scientist, National eDNA Reference Centre, University of Canberra, Canberra, ACT, Australia

Hosted by: Dr. Roger Huerlimann, OIST Marine Climate Change Unit

Abstract: Globalisation is increasing the rate and complexity of trade connections between countries. This increasing network of interactions, in hand with the movement of both people and goods, puts countries at risk of invasive pests and diseases, constraining their capacity to protect economic, ecological, and social livelihood. Tackling the increasing influx of invasive pests and pathogens requires the use of biosecurity measures within diverse methodologies used to detect, eradicate, and minimize the inherent risks of these unwanted species.

Biodiversity plays a central role in humankind’s interaction with the biosphere, lying at the heart of all ecosystem structure and functioning. Biodiversity describes the variability and connectivity of life across different levels (from bacteria to plants and animals) and dimensions (from genetic to ecological and from taxonomic to functional):

This workshop will bring together practitioners and enthusiasts of biodiversity research from Tohoku University and OIST to illuminate this fascinating theme from multiple angles, with the aim of discovering complementary perspectives and collaborative opportunities.

PUBLIC SPEAKING WORKSHOP WITH ORATORS CLUB - RAM 2022

Friday, October 21, 2022 - 12:30
L4E48

Imagine you’re about to present at a conference (or symposium, seminar, or panel discussion…). You know your research well and could generally talk about it for hours, but… somehow the setting makes you stumble. Well, whether we like it or not, presenting one’s research in front of an audience is a key skill all scientists need to master. At OIST Orators Club we have found it helpful to practice public speaking in a supportive environment and would like to extend what we’ve learned in the past few years to the rest of the researchers’ community.
